Thanks. I'll see what the lfs has before I decide. But, if I could find the Clown but not the goby, just wanted to make sure I could do that. I may get a Hi Fin Banded Goby instead of the Yasha, depending on availability. It looks pretty similar and seems a little easier to get.

Yeah I have some live rock. They are the darker brown pieces in the FTS. There are about 5-6 pieces of live rock in there.

Thanks. I'll look into that.

Thanks Inferno, Zer0, and Sharkbait!

The hi fin banded goby is a really cool fish. I used to keep one in the Biocube 8 nano. It's similar in size and behavior to the yasha, but is easier to find as you said, and also a lot cheaper.

I got new stuff today!!!

I got my light fixture, thanks to UPS for that. I actually like the color with all 6 bulbs on, so I'll keep them for a bit before upgrading...or atleast I'll take my time.

Since the tank is officially cycled, I did a 10-15% water change today before the new inhabitants got here. I also setup my skimmer, but I can't for the life of me get it to siphon...I'm missing a piece and apparently it isn't just me. I can't figure out how to get it going though.

So, I went to the lfs today and got:

2 Clownfish (not sure what they are yet..probably False Percs, but I'm not sure. The black and white ones were $20 more and I decided last minute I'd like to have 2....and the lfs guy didn't have 2 that came in together and he said they do better when they come in together (I dunno if there is truth to that...). So, the regular Clowns were cute as pie, so they are mine.

FTS with all bulbs on:

I'll take a better one later. That one was with my macro lens, which doesn't take good FTS.

And the clowns acclimating:


I also got a Zoa frag. Not sure what kind they are, but they are acclimating as well. I'll get pics whenever they are in the tank and open up for me (which might be tomorrow).

I'm almost positive you have true perculas there. The ocellaris don't have as much black on them. They look super healthy and nice!

Thanks! I just looked at them in the bucket again and they do have alot of black on them, so maybe they are true Percs. They were swimming around together at the lfs, so hopefully they'll be good friends. They'll go in the tank in about 15 mins. I drip acclimated them for over 2 hours, so hopefully that will do it. I'll get some pics of them in the tank later if they'll cooperate.

More better FTS showing the new light fixture, all bulbs on:


Just 2 10000K bulbs:


edit:

Clowns in the tank:

Thanks guys!

I'll try to get some pics of my Zoas this weekend. They are pretty, but small.
